Marriage can be either the source of life's greatest joys... or the root of much misery, even tragedy.
There is a five-word formula that is the key to a joyous marriage. "Don't cause pain, give pleasure." Both with words and deeds, be careful not to cause your spouse needless pain. And do as much as you can to give your spouse pleasure. Your capacity for kindness is unlimited!
(From Rabbi Pliskin's book entitled "Marriage" - ArtScroll
Publications, 1998, Chapter Two, p.123)
